Surviving Winter with a Toddler

Stroller is Kolcraft

How cold did it get in the last few days!!! Nevertheless, I got Nicky all dressed up in his head-to-toe winter gear and took him outside. But he wouldn't have it! He stood on the porch for a few minutes, then turned around and headed back for the house!!! After much convincing, he finally agreed to get in the stroller and go for a little walk. A few minutes of pushing the stroller later, I realized I forgot my gloves and, as my hands started to slowly turn blue, I thought of all the things I still need to get to make it through the winter with a toddler.

Here is a few things you will need this winter:




1. Gloves
I was pleasantly surprised to discover Nicky doesn't mind mittens. He can even hold things while wearing them. As for me, I am never leaving the house without a pair gloves again!

For Baby:
7. Red wool mittens  //  8. White gloves  //  9. Pink mittens  //
10. Deer face  //  11. Pink cable knit  //  12. Blue-yellow striped mittens  //

For Mama:
